Raw Video: Obama Honors Return of Fallen Soldiers
In the middle of the night, President Obama went to Dover Air Force Base to salute arriving caskets of U.S. servicemen killed in Afghanistan. This footage is powerful, and has instantly become a potent symbol of Obama's administration, destined to outlast his term. This respect and honor to fallen military is something Presidents tend to shy away from, avoiding blame. That said, I hope that the somber discussions with these soldiers' families will help Obama keep in mind the human cost in both of these ongoing, needless wars.
